My personal expression applications and understanding of the WHKD Hand Combinations. I will include the first three here for you. I believe that first you have to understand the range game principles that help make these combinations practical and useful. Here is a few......

Firing Line
Is the distance at which either opponent can strike without moving forward because one has crossed the fighting measure

Bridging the gap
Occurs when one opponent close the space between the fighting measure. The gap is bridged when either one or the other opponent moves past the fighting measure into striking distance

Critical distance Line
Is between the fighting measure and the fire line. At this distance, either move back to intercept or move forward to build momentum and get the most power from an attack. By doing this, a WHKD practitioner gains the necessary power to penetrate two inches.


 

1: (Straight Punch) Step in left block and upside down right hook punch to temple; same time: right hand pulls opponent to punch, left eye poke, right back fist, right throat poke, right back fist.
A. Attack on intention-when they are thinking about it
B. Attack on preparation- when they telegraph their intentions


2: (Straight Punch) Step to right and right straight punch to face, right hand pulls down opponent punch hand and left eye poke, right groin punch, left sternum punch, right back fist to head.
A. Attack on intention-when they are thinking about it
B. Attack on delivery- intercepts the attack on the half beat with a stop hit

3: (Hook or Straight Punch) Same time: left open hand outward block and right eye poke. Right downward slap to groin and left palm heel to face, left ear grab, pull to left eye poke, right hand right ear grab.
A. Attack on delivery- intercepts the attack on the half beat with a stop hit
B. Attack on completion- intercepting it at full extention

KICKING PHILOSOPHIES
Since the 60´s, kicking has become an ever growing part of street fighting. Most Oriental countries have long since perfected the art of kicking as a part of their rough-and-tumble street or sporting encounters, but in the Americas the average person is still mostly unskilled insofar as serious street fights are concerned. The movie Billy Jack bought to light the skills of high kicking in the 1970's and Master of Hapkido Bong Soo Han make them look easy! But is takes great skill to pull them off as a beginner.

A large percentage of today´s adolescents and young adults has concentrated a great deal of time in the development of kicks--mostly kicks of a dazzling nature such as high spinning or flying kicks aimed at the opponent´s head. While certainly not ineffective, these kicks can very easily cause the kicker to lose his own balance, too much time is consumed for the kick to move from the ground to the head making the kick avoidable, and they can´t often be relied on to hit the desired target with the desired force before being avoided or blocked.

In interviews with dozens of martial artists, students, and street fighters, most say that they have never seen a high kick actually decide a fight! In "fight to the finish" championships started in the 90´s and still popular, there is an abundance of convincing evidence that Thai boxers, karatemen, etc., finally needed to resort to other techniques rather than kicks.

The simpler and effective kicking techniques described here can definitely win in a street fight, especially against an unskilled fighter. These kicks can damage and sap the wind of an opponent, can put an end to the fight, and may leave the attacker in a vulnerable position.

To practice kicks, begin slowly, following the directions precisely. Always keep your eyes on your opponent, lift your knee high, and lash out with full power being sure that the proper part of your foot strikes the exact target that you are aiming for. Keep your hands under control so that they can be useful in your follow-up or for defense during and after your kick. Practice against a kicking bag if possible, but when practicing against a partner be sure to stop the kick short of the target.

In a street fight you can use your hands to feint toward the opponent as a means of misdirection so that he will not be thinking about an approaching kick. Kick with power and with your bodily weight. You must maintain a strong stance with good balance. After a kick you must quickly withdraw the kicking leg so you may prepare for your nest move and so that your opponent cannot grab it. Within Wun Hop Kuen Do it is a very high kicking art, but uses the whole body to effect the means to the end of a fight, using whatever works.

If you kick and it is grabbed, your only defense is to try to pull yourself into the opponent to attack, thereby closing the gap as you attack while he has your foot in his hands, or simpley falling to the ground and posting for defense.

Kicking has it's place in street fighting it is up to the individual to find out what works for him/her.


Kick Combinations
1. Step cross side kick-spinning back kick-right roundhouse kick
2. Shuffle in left low kick roundhouse kick to groin-right roundhouse kick- cross and back kick
3. right front kick to groin-right hook kick to head-right roundhouse kick to head
4. shuffle in low left roundhouse kick-right fake low front kick to right roundhouse kick-left spinning back kick
These combinations are not meant as an end all, just a way of training for coordination. They should be broken down and used for the individual personal expression in defense.

George Thompson, Ph.D., Verbal Judo Institute

How much is to much? The key is always REASONABLE force. You are allowed to use that force which is considered reasonable for the situation you are faced with. That reason is based upon the reasonable person theory. What would a resonable person in the same situation do? Not a person out of control, trying to kill everyone, but a reasonable person.

I have included a training outline from a department on the use of Deadly Force. I hope this helps.

THE USE OF DEADLY FORCE

In order to justify the use of deadly force two requirements must be present. Those two requirements are imminent danger and preclusion. Imminent danger consists of the following four elements: intent, means, opportunity, and ability. Preclusion represents that all other reasonable options have been exhausted or inappropriate.

To establish imminent danger all four of the elements that make up imminent danger must be present. If one element is missing, imminent danger does not exist. Without imminent danger the need to justify preclusion does not exist, and deadly force is not justifiable. In determining whether or not deadly force is justified, the first step is to determine if imminent danger exists.

Elements of Imminent Danger:
• Intent
• Means
• Opportunity
• Ability

Elements Defined:
Intent can be defined as an attacker’s apparent desire to cause great bodily injury or death.
Means can be defined as the device used by the attacker to cause great bodily injury or death.
Opportunity can be defined as the attacker’s opportunity to use the means to cause great bodily injury of death.
Ability can be defined as the attacker’s ability to use the means to cause great bodily injury or death.

When all four elements of imminent danger are present then one of two requirements has been established for the use of deadly force. The second and final requirement needed to justify the use of deadly force is that all other reasonable options have been exhausted or inappropriate. This requirement is defined as preclusion.

Elements of Preclusion:
• All other options have been exhausted, ineffective, or are inappropriate

Elements Defined:
The elements of preclusion are departmental specific and determined by your department’s use of force continuum and availability or resources.
Imminent Danger Examples:
To further explain the elements of imminent danger consider the following:

The attacker’s intent can be expressed through words like, “I’m going to kill you,” or through actions like pointing a gun or knife at you or another person.

The means an attacker uses to cause great bodily harm or death can be an easily identifiable weapon like a knife or gun, but in reality, can be any instrument capable of causing great bodily injury or death. A brick, large rock, tire iron, screwdriver, and so on are all instruments that can be used as a deadly weapon.

Opportunity refers to the attacker’s opportunity to use the means to cause great bodily harm or death. The attacker could easily close a 12 foot distance and stab you with a knife or screwdriver. So, the opportunity is there for them to use the means to carry out the threat. However, if the attacker was 45 feet a way holding a knife in their hand or the two of you were separated by an 8 foot wall, the opportunity for them to use the means to carry out the act would not be present.

The ability refers to the attacker’s ability to use the means to carry out the threat. Let’s say the attacker is standing 6 feet in front of you with a tire iron in their hand and threatens to kill you with it. You have intent (threats to kill), means (tire iron), and opportunity (6 feet away), but the attacker is only 7 years old and 45lbs.

Based upon this example, the attacker does not have the physical ability to use the weapon to the point where they could cause great bodily injury or death. Ability is missing, so imminent danger does not exist.

Let’s say everything was the same, but the attacker is 30 years old, 5’10” and 180lbs, making him physically able to use the tire iron in a capacity that could cause great bodily injury or death. With all four elements present imminent danger would be established. If you take away anyone of the elements, remember, you do not have imminent danger.

Imminent danger by itself is not enough to justify the use of deadly force. You must also establish preclusion which amounts to showing that all other reasonable options have been exhausted or inappropriate.

You walk up to the scene of a domestic violence call. As you near the residence the front door fly’s open and a 25 year old man of average size rushes from the doorway right at you. The man is holding a large kitchen knife in his right hand and says, “Not you bastards again!” You draw your firearm as he closes the distance and you fire until the attacker is no longer a threat.

Your decision to shoot was justified since all the elements of imminent danger were present and you had no other reasonable options based upon your force continuum. Since a knife is a deadly weapon comparable to a firearm, and we do not go down the force continuum but a level higher, the use of your firearm would be the appropriate response. As far as options, your only real options in a situation like this besides firing your weapon would be to run or drop to the ground. Since both of these options expose you to danger they are not appropriate. The use of deadly force is justifiable.

Imminent Danger without Preclusion:
An example of where you can have imminent danger but not be justified in using deadly force is as follows:

You stop your patrol car near a vacant warehouse in a secluded area of the city. You hear a gunshot and feel something hit your car. You see a man holding a hand gun standing on the second story balcony approximately 50 feet from you. The person yells, “I hate the police,”

You have imminent danger. The attacker’s words, plus his actions equal intent. His weapon is the means. The round hitting your car demonstrates that you are within his kill zone, so he has the opportunity to shoot you. The attacker demonstrated he could pull the trigger of the weapon, so they have the ability to use the means.

As you position yourself to return fire, the attacker walks back into the building through an open doorway and closes the door. You immediately move to the side of a brick building for cover. Although you have imminent danger, you may not have preclusion. If your place of cover adequately protects you from harm, you now have other options available.

A situation like this is commonly referred to as a barricaded suspect. So, if no one else is at risk and you have secure place of cover that protects you, a situation like this would lead to a perimeter, HNT, and Entry Team call out. If you shot into the building and by chance killed the attacker, the courts would discuss whether or not you exhausted all other options. In this case you will be hard-pressed to show you did.

In order to justify the use of deadly force, the courts have concluded both imminent danger and preclusion must be present. In a deadly force situation all four elements of imminent danger must be present to constitute imminent danger. Minus any of the elements, imminent danger does not exist. Imminent danger by itself is also not enough. Preclusion must be established to complete the requirements to justify the use of deadly force.

Nubreed Kaju-WHKD Grappling Guard Position Training

Guard Position ( Closed) Hold the position for 15 sec. With you and your partner working at about 75%, your partner will work to escape your guard control. You will do whatever to control your partner from escaping

Guard Position (closed) 15 sec. to escape

Guard position (open)- hold the position for 15 sec.

Guard position (open)- 15 sec. to escape

Guard Position (open) drill-as your partner stands up, control or grab their arms and work on placing the feet in the arm pits, hips, hooking behind the knees. then mix them up at various levels, work at spining around and following your partner as he moves around you. The use the WHKD drop and recovers to escape from the back on ground position.

Guard Position (open) grab the bottom of the gi pants and try to hold on as your partner tries to break your grips with his feet.

Guard combination attack: Triangle choke to armbar to kimura behind back

In guard: as your partner tries to control your head and pull it down, worked to escape the grabbing attacks, try to control their biceps and arms, dive to right cross to the face and on the way back elbow the thighs. Bottom man does reversal and the drill is switched.


Guard Position drill- partner is in your guard, use this position to practice some of your stand up lapel grabs or chokes.
Defense example: for a two hand choke; Using both of your hands and pop strike to the ears, rake down the face and catch the arms in the choking position, lock your knuckles together and deliver a double knuckle punch to the bridge of the nose, left hand grab behind the head and right hand control chin and twist the head counter clockwise and escape.
You will find that there will be standing techniques that you have learned that will find work from any position!
Example 2: When they are pushing on your chest, use your left hand control their right hand on your chest, use the right hand, and reach in a grab behind the right elbow and apply pressure to the wrist that is trapped on your chest...use your left hand and right hand and pull them forward with your legs wrist flex submission, if the hand slips out to the side move to Kumura bent arm back hand back lock.

Guard Position drill: Punches
Partner in your guard and throwing a right straight punch, practice slipping to side and move to shoulder lock or hand triangle choke, move to reversal.
Partner in guard and throwing hooking right punch; cut the punch with your left forearm and over hook it and move to figure four arm lock, place your feet on their hips and arch up for elbow break, then scissor sweep reversal to escape position. This are just some of the methods that we use in our class to develop the grappling range. We follow some of the same concepts for the mount as well, hold the position and escape the positions..submission and escapes.
